I have checked just about all european online stores and none have any refurbished products. US store does though. Does this happen alot? I find it weird that their is not a single product, nothing, as if apple is purposely not selling any at this point.
Just wondering if anyone knows anything

Cheers :)

Refurb store inventory, which is based on refurbished product availability, can change from minute-to-minute and is quite unpredictable.

So all europe is based on one inventory? Just like all orders are shipped from the netherlands?
Guess everyone is really happy with their apple products at the moment :D

The UK store has lots of refurbished this morning, no MBP 13 or 15, but everything else.

You posted on Sunday. On Sunday, or after midnight, there are no refurbished products.

Which site are you talking about? There are plenty of refurb products on both the US and european Apple refurb stores!

Please read my post carefully. Here is what I posted:

Ahh interesting. There were plenty available the next morning. Do they update the offers on sunday?

I guess these guys don't work 7 days a week. Before the current inventory gets posted the techs needs to fix or inspect a batch of apples and then submit the new inventory to the web guys that then list. So if it was a good week for sales then inventory might be sparse until Monday morning (depending on how one defines Monday morning due to variable time zones).

Just a guess.

Yes it was obviously after midnight when I posted that, and there are also plenty of refurbs available on many Sundays, as well. The fact that they may be out of inventory at a particular time has nothing to do with the time of day or a day of the week.
